Dr Ngozi who is an alumni of Harvard University and Massachusetts institute of Technology, were she bagged a degree, MA and PhD in Economics, has proved to the world that Africans can also lead top positions and achieve great feats when given the opportunity. In this article, we shall be featuring some of the accomplishments achieved by this brilliant woman.

Recall that former President of USA, Donald Trump had earlier hindered the appointment of Okonjo - Iweala in 2020, stating that electing her will be a great 'mistake' due to her lack of trading experience.

But like they say ' who God has blessed, no man can curse' - Dr Ngozi Iweala is currently the DG of WTO.
